    down went the poor old clock
    a bang and off the wall
    and down down down it did fall

    And did a whoopsie
    on the ground
    and oh did it make
    such a sound

    The only problem was
    that on its way
    it hit my face
    and now a black eye
    I must grace

    Oh heck Juli. I bet it's getting to the stage where people don't recognise you without bumps and bruises. I hope the eye isn't causing too much pain xx

    Having learned my lesson the hard way, I never move around my home wearing my spectacles. Been there, done that, and thank you but I do not want another 20 sutures on and around an eyelid because I smashed my spectacles in the side of my eye.

    So bumps, bruises, black eyes - well that is me. A good thing nobody can see the bruises elsewhere! And I reckon they are used to see my face as it tends to be at times. At least nobody says anything anymore.

    What I do not know is why the clock fell off the wall... just when I was below it? It is not the only clock either - I have clocks everywhere - I had to because of Pereg, when I had to note everything down. Last time a clock fell off the wall was during an earthquake.

    There have been a lot of earthquakes and tremors in the North but not here. But we are on a major fault line so anything can happen at any time.

    Maybe I should take all my clocks and pictures down?

    Oh dear, your poor face. I hope it wasn't a precious clock.

    Precious? Not at ~£4 :043: I think my ancient wrinkled face is worth more than a cheapo clock! I just had to have clocks on all walls because of Pereg so when one of the little catalogues had a special offer...

    ...I sort of stocked up. Well, buy cheap expect them not to last, but you do not expect them to just fall off the wall.

    When you are underneath them.

    Do you?

    who cares about the
    poor old clonk

    My eye be bad
    de button
    no work

    And when I pressed the main speaker/amplifier they told me I had cancelled the service a week ago - after 20 years? As if. 20 years I have paid so I should now cancel it? Why did I join the service to just cancel it last week?

    So they said that someone in my home had telephoned to cancel it.

    Who?

    Tikva?

    So now I have no emergency service,

    Dey sorta got
    scared
    and what did dey do

    Sent a truck full of police [regular and border] and an ambulance, to make sure I was OK? Only I was having a nap in bed so they broke the door down.

    But the emergency service still will not let me re-connect to the service.

    And the police want to know who gave me the black eye.

    I told them it was Tikva.
